  2. Buttons in bottom menu

    Make Buttons in bottom menu, not just texts.

    Currently the text menu has no clear separation, so can press other menu item accidentally.

    I suggest to make buttons in bottom menu.

  4. Calculate occupied space

    Midnight Commander, Total Commander for Android, Winscp has the features to calculate occupied space of listed directories.

    Although it is possible for local directories in Ghost Commander (select all and Info menu), but it doesn't have a dedicated button or menu item.
    I would suggest to have a dedicated button or menu item for this feature.

    Also this feature should also work for remote panel, for example an sftp directory.

    This would be a very useful feature.

  5. improve using more external sdcards

    Hi,
    I am not sure if this is the right place for a patch. It improves using more than one external sdcard (or otg flash disk). In the list on home screen you can see the block id of the partition and SAF can be used to access multiple partition at once. My use case is simply to copy files from otg flash disk to sdcard or vice versa. Could you, please, implement something like this?

    Thanks

    Pavel

    The patch is against the fdroid code for 1.56.4 version.

  6. Support for SSH Authentication API in combination with OpenKeychain to use OpenPGP keys.

    Support authentication subkeys on smart cards and other security tokens (Yubikey) over NFC and USB like TermBot SSH does.

  8. Add verify option for writing files

    Add a verify option (that can be turned on and off) to guarantee correctly written files. Helps to detect faulty sd cards or devices. When active, the written data should be re-read from device and compared by hash (eg. md5) to detect write errors.

  9. Local storage and external SD card swapped

    It's more like a question than a request or suggestion. I have noticed that after factory reset GC sometimes swaps local and external storage: when I tap on local storage on Home panel it shows contents of the external card and when I tap on external card it shows contents of internal storage. Any other file manager installed on my phone show these correctly. Any ideas to fix this?

  10. Sort directories by size when sorting files by size.

    Similar to UNIX: du -sh * | sort -hr

    This may be slow, so it can be done by having a low-priority background thread calculate directory sizes and update the list asynchronously only if the user hasn't moved on to some other directory.

  11. Add a terminal!!

    Nothing fancy, maybe let us write our scripts with the text editor, ability to execute them, and move them to whatever file directrory we might want them. Would be nice to do it all from ghost. Would eliminate having to download another app.

  14. Select files by tapping their icon/preview

    Add a checkbox that would allow us to select a file by tapping on its icon or preview regardless of its size.
    (Currently it's possible to mimic this for a single level of icon/preview size only.)

  15. to add descending option to sort method

    I would like to suggest descending option in sort files. I believe people will like to see newer files first. Now we can do it by selecting twice the same sort method. It's a bit long way for touchable screens.

  16. Unpack to separate subfolder

    When unpacking an archive need an option to unpack it in subfolder. For example when I download new music album which compressed in zip I first need to create folder with desired name and then make extraction in this folder. Might be good idea to add folder detection to not create one manually.
    PS. This ability exists in Total Commander for android.
    Pps. (noreply email address)

  17. Add support for Android TV

    There isn't very much choice with file explorers that support android TV (leanback launcher). Ghost commander would be a great choice!

  20. Add a "token" option to the sftp plugin.

    right now the sftp plugin uses a userid and password, however many systems use a one-time-token (like Google Authenticatior).

    After the password prompt there is another prompt for the token, however GC doesn't currently have a away to handle this.
